Pirates 3, Cardinals 1

PITTSBURGH — Ike Davis hit a two-run drive off a speaker above the seats in right-centerfield, Jeff Locke outpitched Adam Wainwright and the Pirates drew closer in the NL wild-card race. Davis' second-inning blast came a day after he had a pinch-hit, tiebreaking three-run homer in the eighth inning of Pittsburgh's 5-2 win. "It's the first time he's been involved in games that have this kind of significance this late in the season," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "He's showing up to the ballpark ready contribute any way he can."
